Job Details

Data Scientists create products, models, and analyses to support decision making across the company. You'll work closely with engineers to develop the data systems that make Squarespace run. The Data Science team uses a modern technology stack: Python 3, Postgres, Spark, Scikit-learn, and an evolving list of new tools.

 

Depending on your area of focus, questions you may tackle in a typical day include:

  • How do ads on Spotify, TV, and online news sites interact to connect with our audience?

  • How can we forecast awareness of Squarespace through word of mouth in different cities?

  • What statistical methodology and tools should we build to conduct A/B tests?

  • How do we predict customer lifetime value? 

We are seeking multiple Data Scientists who demonstrate sharp intellectual curiosity, data fluency, and a collaborative work ethic. These roles report to an Analytics team lead in New York.

 

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Build predictive models to empower strategic decisions, e.g. subscriber forecast, retention, lifetime value, marketing attribution

  • Actively seek better ways to solve business problems using data

  • Collaborate with Data Engineering to design the systems and infrastructure to power our data needs

  • Partner with analysts to empower them with tools and analytic methodologies

Requirements

QUALIFICATIONS

  • On-the-job experience with a scripting language (Python preferred)

  • Fluency in SQL

  • Knowledge of statistical and machine learning methodologies

  • Ability to communicate analysis methodologies and results to different audiences

  • Experience with large scale data processing tools (Apache Spark or Hadoop) or implementing systems in production at scale is a strong plus
